Wind River 2017

Wind River debuted at Sundance over the weekend and reviews are good for the new movie from Sicario and Hell or High Water writer Taylor Sheridan who also made his directorial debut. No release date yet or trailer, hopefully coming soon. Supposed to be 2017, I believe they are waiting on a distributor.

Im looking forward to this and Soldado when they come out, Ill make a trip to the theater based on his previous works.

Finally it looks like the Weinstein's came back on board to distribute the film. Curiously the release date is 1 yr from Hell or High Water release date, Aug 4 2017. Still no trailer, I would imagine it should be out soon.

Looks good. Glad to have intelligent adult drama from Sheridan continue to be greenlighted. I'm a little burned out on Renner, but Olsen is really coming into her own. She does the vulnerable yet relatable very well. Is there an updated release date?

From reviews Renner got quite a bit of praise for his part, some said his best to date. I like Sheridan's pacing and dialogue so Im looking forward to it. The first trailer seems slightly tame, the reviews seem to be in line it is not.

As far as Im concerned Sheridan knocked it out of the park again. Moody like his other movies, Id say he should get some nominations for this one as well, cast was quite good . My wife and I really enjoyed it, great movie. If you enjoyed Hell or High Water or Sicario you wont be disappointed I wouldn't think BUT YMMV

I saw this this past weekend and thought it was excellent. Jeremy Renner is really suited to this type of role -- his physicality makes him a believable outdoorsman-type. Nice understated scenes and some really suspenseful moments.

This is one of the rare occasions I've heard audience applause at the conclusion.

I saw this last night. My thoughts:
Pros: 1) The cinematography was breathtaking. Most of the film was shot outdoors and there were numerous expansive shots which were beautiful. 2) The story - another excellent achievement for Taylor Sheridan. 3) The cast - good choice of actors, and their performances were all very good

Cons: 1) The story - OK I did list the story as a pro, because in its entirety it is a good story. But I was a bit disappointed in how the story was told. The events surrounding the death of the girl were kind of dumped on the audience just as the story was closing in on the climax. I think this was a con because there were a few minutes in this movie that were an information overload - so much happening to contribute to the story.

Despite the story line and how it was told, I love the panoramic scenes and the showdown, as well as how justice was served. After Sicario and Hell or High Water, I was not disappointed.

It's the best movie I've seen so far this year, better than Wonder Woman and Planet of the Apes. It's under 2 hours, but still can cut shorter.

Finally, it's out on disc. Good news. Looking forward to it.

Welp, I googled Wind river release date and came back with 8-4. Somehow thought this was still 08 2017. Went to buy it today.... I either need to start drinking a lot more or a lot less.
